Wee Teck Hian – East Coast Park 01, 2005
This print is from the exhibition Longing and Belonging by Wee Teck Hian, whose works document the transformation of various spaces in Singapore such as Marina Bay, the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway tracks, and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. The images explore what it means to belong to a community and country that is ever changing, and will resonate with anyone who has ever pondered the loss of something familiar.
